Impacts of E-Waste and Metalbiz’s Role in its Management
E-waste has several effects, including
The life cycle of electronic products involves processes like mining, manufacturing, and exporting, which release greenhouse gases. E-products also contain harmful materials like lead and mercury, posing risks to human health and the environment if not handled properly.
Loss of Resources
Many electronic products contain valuable metals such as gold, copper, and platinum. When these materials end up in landfills, they are wasted. It creates the demand for new resources increases, therefore, leading to higher costs.
Constantly upgrading, replacing, and buying electronic products can be expensive for households.
It’s important to manage e-waste correctly to keep our environment clean and protect our health. Recycling e-waste helps us reuse valuable materials like gold and copper, which reduces the need to dig up more resources from the earth. It also stops harmful chemicals from polluting our environment. At Metalbiz, we make sure to recycle electronics waste responsibly. We take old devices and turn them into new products, keeping our environment safe and saving precious resources.

E-Waste Generation in Australia
- In 2019, Australia generated 511,000 tonnes of e-waste, averaging 20 kg per person, significantly higher than the global average of 7 kg.
- By 2030, the national total of e-waste is projected to rise by nearly 30%, reaching 657,000 tonnes.
- All businesses must comply with Australian government regulations regarding e-waste management.
- Non-compliance could result in a maximum penalty of $5,000,000 for willful offenses.
Because of these laws, more people are realizing how important it is to recycle e-waste properly. This means that more and more individuals and businesses are starting to recycle their old electronics responsibly. At Metal Biz, we’re excited to be part of this positive change towards a cleaner environment.
